Leading provider of intuitive software solutions and services to the international mining sector, MICROMINE, is again exhibiting at the PDAC Convention between 1 and 4 March 2015 in Toronto, Canada, at booth 603.
“We are excited to showcase the new features of our products at this year’s convention,” said Dallas Araneda, MICROMINE Regional Manager North America. “Our specialists will run interactive demonstrations showing how to meet objectives faster and more affordably.”
Demonstrations of the company’s namesake product, Micromine, will focus on the Implicit Modelling and Stratigraphic Modelling modules.
The Implicit Modelling module is one of only a couple of true implicit modelling tools that use industry-standard radial basis functions (RBFs) to model and visualise grade shells, lithology boundaries, faults and surfaces in seconds.
The Stratigraphic Modelling module simplifies the creation of Seam Block Models (SBM) including splits, plies, overburden and interburden – even in complex stratigraphy areas. The revolutionary display helps validate and visualise complex seam hierarchies. Additionally, the smart tools handle seam pinching and missing holes, honour the original data and produce a geologically correct model.
The team will also be demonstrating Micromine’s ability to handle cloud point data with the use of uGPS Rapid Mapper Scanner.
The new features of Geobank Mobile 2 will be showcased, including the ability to synchronise collected field data and logging profiles with SQL Server. This seamless communication between devices and head office means more efficient workflows, increased data confidence, and improved access.
Geobank Mobile enables users to easily collect and manipulate field data. The software ensures accurate capture with real-time validation and rich data input controls that minimise errors at point of entry. It maximises efficiency with customisable calculated fields, in-built data approval and transfer mechanisms.
Pitram 2015, the latest version of the world’s leading mine control and management system, now integrates with more third-party mining solutions, including Sandvik’s Automine, Mine Site Technologies Impact Vehicle Intelligence Platform and Loadman Systems. These integrations will provide personnel with a more complete and comprehensive understanding of a site and its mine activities.
Specialists will also demonstrate how Pitram’s surface fleet management capabilities have been enhanced through high-precision machine guidance. Equipment operators will be able to perform activities, such as drilling, excavation and loading more precisely, lowering dilution, avoiding equipment damage and ensuring objectives are achieved more efficiently.
“There is no comparable tool in any other mining software package,” said Donald Cameron of Cameron Consulting, which uses Micromine. “[I] was looking for a robust tool that didn’t have a high degree of dependence on the relative data configuration of the sets to be compared, and would not rely on assumptions of parallelism and proximity of twins. I wanted to be able to rapidly assess bias without labouriously setting up estimation runs on each campaign.”
“It took me a while to appreciate how powerful this tool is,” Cameron concluded, “and how it can save a company a great deal of time, money and uncertainty otherwise spent on poorly designed and inadequate twin hole programs.”
